Event 1: Former Chip Leader Deep Sixed

$500 + $60 Big Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

Jason Andrews (Allison Park, PA) was one of the big stacks most of the day, but his tournament ends just shy of the final two tables.

After Andrews and chip leader Tanios Abi-Yaghi (Toms River, NJ) check the turn, a 6 falls on the river.  Abi-Yaghi puts Andrews all in, who makes the quick call for his last 2 million.

Abi-Yaghi shows a rivered straight with 8 4, while Andrews has a pair of 6s with J 6.  "I thought you were trying to make move," says Andrews who is out in 19th place, "I wasn't going to sit here all day."

Andrews takes home $7,003 while the remaining 18 players are bagging and tagging for the night.
